Manna-Pro
Optii-Zyme Probiotic Supplement
Horse Health and Well Being



Manufacturer: Manna-Pro
Model: Optii-Zyme Probiotic Supplement
Category: Horse Health and Well Being

Purchase: I purchased this from horse.com for $10.49. I bought it because my mare gets scours during her heat cycles and I was hoping to prevent that, and because I have an off the track thoroughbred and two older geldings who are hard keepers and I was hoping to help them digest his food a little better.

Likes: The price, for a probiotic, was very good. My geldings did gain weight when we went on it for a month and lost weight afterwards, so it might have worked for them (although it is hard to tell because I put them on it in spring when the grass was growing and then we went into a drought and everything died).

Dislikes: It did not work for my mare; she still had scours during her heat cycles despite being on the probiotic. My mare also didn't really like it, so I had to feed her more grain to get her to eat it, and sometimes she left some in the bottom of her feed pan.

Quality: This comes in a very fine crumble, or a course powder, and goes directly on the feed. My horses ate it if given enough grain, but they weren't willing to eat it by itself.

Summary: I will have to try it again to see if there was an effect on my geldings. It might have worked for three horses as far as helping with weight gain, but it did not help my mare's diarrhea. It is inexpensive enough to try without great consequences if it doesn't work. Not a scours formula, at least for horses in heat, but may help for weight gain.
